CALL FOR FLY-FISHERS AND OTHER VOLUNTEERS TO RAMBLE THE BRODHEAD AND PROMOTE OUR GREAT RESOURCE AND SPORT!
Our sister environmental conservation awareness organization, the Brodhead Watershed Association, will host its annual River Ramble at the newly acquired ForEvergreen property, the site of our recent public fly-fishing workshop, on Sunday, August 10th from 1-5pm. An after-party will follow.
Don Baylor will be electrofishing in a section of the Brodhead. Don Miller is leading hikes on the property. Several other talks, demonstrations, and displays are planned.
I would like to recruit some Brodhead TU members to lead a couple of short walks along the Brodhead showing people how to “read the stream”.
There are some high, boulder strewn banks with a great deal of cover by invasives. We hope to cut a couple of viewpoints that you might use to better show areas that might hold fish; however, a little upstream, the vegetation is lower and the stream bank a little easier to walk down to the stream. I think roughly 200 yards of stream is there to choose spots.
Ideally, if someone could collect some of the insects, they, too, could be part of the walk along the stream!
We have need for others to volunteer to drive golf carts, help people around the facility, and we would welcome any and all volunteers….and feed them too!
Yes…of course, you can fish, as well!
Please contact John Smith by email ASAP or by phone if you are willing to help at the event in any capacity.
